NO way was I having this nice lady - my senior by 20 years push me around or anybody else ! Yes - to much pride The gal at the lab was great - lol we had lots of laughs - I have been there before and never had the same one draw blood - I asked if she had every done this before - She replied that this was her first day ! They threw her the keys and said you have to learn sometime - lol She was a good one - didn't even know when she stuck me

I bet Spock and Eva are happy to get out and see the world!

Sorry to cause you "the early morning up short you just put me through. " 3 hours of sleep - definitely going short!
Once I get through the books I am trying to read- I will start back with Robin Hobbs. Books I am reading - Sovereign of the Seven Isles by David A. Wells....it is a 7 book series. I am on the 3rd book Mindbender....the series is only ok but have started them so will try and finish.
One comments from someone about the series:
"I have to say, this book is an enigma. There is so much not good about it, but somehow I kept turning the pages and finished it fairly quick. "
Seems the stars are either 1 or 2 or 4 or 5 with just a few in between
Basic principle the main character and others are living by and fighting the bad guys over.
The Old Law: "You have a right to your life because you are alive. You have a right to your liberty because you have free will. You have a right to your property because it is the product of your labor. You forfeit these rights when you take them from another.”
I also like to re-read books - one to pick up things I missed and two as you state Mel - a comfort thing.
I like the thinking anime - Just see the wheels turning or you pacing back and forth

Congrats, Aunt B on Toad's 14 yr. longevity!!
Sure would be great to see a current picture of the OG !
They have this wonderous new thing now called "Digital Photography" which allows even Luddites to upload pics to an interweb forum...
When I told my DW that a DT member's Dobe made it to age 14, she said:
"OMG - Five More Years of THIS ?????"
Unrelated News- We rescued a stray young husky female puppy yesterday and reunited with owner in a few hours. (Lots of Husky owners in area- seem to always be loose on NextDoor postings) I used chip ID tag on collar to call her in as found and notify owners. Her name is Bella and was a perfect sweety, coming up for affection and taking treats and water. I tethered her on front mat, where I normally sit Eva. We introduced her to Lanah and she was a bit scared.
When I walked Eva in yard to see Bella from distance she was very interested and non aggressive. However she seemed to say in dog talk: "Don't bring that young beatch in this house, I'm the Diva here!!!
Now my DW brought Mr. Spocko out on leash in garage (mistake) when owners came by and he acted like a knucklehead, doing his Dobe yodel: "Oooh aah, Oooh aah, Ooooooh aaaah" as if he'd never seen another young female before...
I explained to my DW that Spock was just saying to the young female husky: "Welcome to our house, young lady, I'm trapped here with old female bittys who yell at me all the time" For some reason, my DW didn't think that was funny at all....

Eva & Spock Resting After Completing School Visits This Week
Spock and Eva will have a break next week from school visits due to holiday vacation period.
However, during 1st two weeks in Dec their schedule is loaded including:
(3) Regular weekly E. S. Read With Me Visits
(1) Career Day presentation at E. S. - Spock (5 x 4th grade classes- 2 hrs.)
(1) Senior Center visit & presentation- Eva (already made a prelim visit)
(3) College De-Stress visits- Both Spock & Eva (UTSA, UIW, St.MarysU)
(1) School District awards ceremony - Spock (for 1.5 yrs. volunteer work)
Pet Supply Store Ferret Rant- WTH? Was in checkout line at our local Pet Supplies Plus store getting (more) dog food with Spock. Then I (and Spock) noticed they had several ferrets in a cage close to checkout lines, where lots of dogs are brought through daily. Mr. Spock had never seen ferret(s) so of course barked as to say "WTH are those little furry things?" Went through same line with Eva next day and ferrets were sleeping and she ignored them, but did smell. I did mention to manager that placing any small animals near checkout lines was not a smart thing...
More-Ferret Related I couldn't sleep and logged in at 0430- Mel was still online and just getting to sleep! Good thing she has ferrets.... (Always a good GIF subject...)
Ma! Time to Go Sleepy-Sleep...

Bug , Way to go, you do know how to enjoy a dobe. |
He looked to be a real stud back in the day , congrats to a dobe milestone!
"I ain't as good as I once was
I got a few years on me now
But there was a time back in my prime
When I could really lay it down
And if you need some love tonight
Then I might have just enough
I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was"

You're So Vain |
You walked into the party
Like you were walking on a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf, it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror
And watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Oh, you had me several years ago
When I was still naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain

Second best...an old post of Bug's |
http://www.foxfiredobermans.com/ on the "The Boys" page.
Maybe in other places on the site too, i didn't have time to look all over.
|11-20-2019 03:13 PM|
|ECIN||I'm not on face book either - anyway could somebody could post up the picture of Toad - would love to see him .|
|11-20-2019 03:01 PM|
Yup...put a congratulations up there too (under my son's name--I'm not officially on Facebook ) |
Such a gorgeous boy!!
|11-20-2019 02:31 PM|
|MeadowCat||I did see the FB announcement on the Foxfire page. It's so great to have a Dobe reach 14!|
|11-20-2019 02:07 PM|
AIEEEEEEE!!! DT, Windows 10 and dial up have all conspired to drive me crazy...I DID start an announcement thread--DT ate it--I had already loaded it and DT just pretended that it couldn't find the page.
At this point, I'm too cold and too irritated and can't even go to the library today because they are closed to complete a new roofing project.
I hear someone has a big Toad tribute up on Facebook/Foxfire Dobermans--I'll be back when I can go do this at the library--until then--BAH HUMBUG!!

And hey!! Don't pick on my sleeping habits. To bed at about 4 AM last night and up at 7AM...I'm going short today. I was about that short yesterday too...I don't know what has gotten into me. Anyway, if I don't show up tomorrow until it's afternoon, I deserve the extra sleep. phbbbbtt......

|MeadowCat||Happy birthday, Toad! So awesome!|
|11-20-2019 11:02 AM|
|melbrod|| Toad! |
Happy Happy HAPPY Birthday!!!
Oops, just realized that might be too much for your (computer) system, AB (or have you got it all working now?)
(Though static doesn't work quite as well)
Do start an announcement thread, if you'd like.
|11-20-2019 10:34 AM|
|ECIN||Happy Birthday Toad ! What a mile stone to reach ! Must be all that great lovin that Aunt B gives yeah !|
|11-20-2019 10:30 AM|
OK--you can all stop holding your breath now. |
DRUMROLL--Today is Toad's birthday. He's now 14!!!!
|11-20-2019 10:23 AM|
[BI bet I'd like them better now that I see where the storyline was going ][/B] |
But isn't that is the reason to read a book or watch a movie ? You don't know what's going to happen ? That keeps your interest in it ? Why or what is going to happen or not ?
It would be like watching a movie about Midway or Peral Harbor - you know the Japanese are going to blow the hell out of it -
But who am I to say - I'm not right
BTW Mel , if you had slept in a little longer it would have been tomorrow
